This pioneering book shows how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology can illuminate the study of history. It encompasses a broad range of history, from the Greek and Roman eras to the Salem witch trials, the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, and the shifting human mosaic of 20th-century New York City. In each chapter, leading scholars explain how mapping and spatial analysis with GIS put geography at the heart of historical inquiry. Richly illustrated, Past Time, Past Place makes a vivid supplement to many courses in history, geography, sociology, anthropology, religious studies, and GIS. It will also fascinate arm-chair historians who read history with an atlas at their side.
